Create flow to create new document in SharePoint online library

 

I have a document library for a weekly meeting. I want the library to automatically create a new document every Tuesday afternoon. 

How can I set this up in a flow to create a new document every Tuesday. 

This document library has its own unique template.

 

It would be great if this workflow would as set title of document to:   "StaffNotes.WeekOf. "&TEXT(Created-WEEKDAY(Created,3)+7,"mm-dd-yyyy")

Hi @ MicroARich,

 

Could you please share more details about the new document that you would like to create every Tuesday?

Could you please share more details about the unique template that the new document use?

Could you please share more details about the title which contain "&TEXT(Created-WEEKDAY(Created,3)+7" that you mentioned you want to use?

 

You could take a try to create a flow as screenshot below:

The flow would run successfully as below:

Re: Create flow to create new document in SharePoint online library

Its a weekly meeting notes file that multiple people go in and edit on a weekly basis. It is an excel file I have set as the template to the document library where I want this to run on. The point is to create a new document each week called: Notes.WeekOf.03-26-18.xlsx. this document should have been created last Tuesday for users to edit for a meeting tomorrow 3/27/18. Tomorrow afternoon a new document should be created called Notes.WeekOf.04-02-18.xlsx for users to edit the next week.

@v-yuazh-msft I have set up something similar see my screen shots below.2018-04-04 07_40_54-Edit your flow _ Microsoft Flow1.png2018-04-04 07_41_27-Edit your flow _ Microsoft Flow2.png2018-04-04 07_42_07-Edit your flow _ Microsoft Flow3.png2018-04-04 07_42_37-Edit your flow _ Microsoft Flow4.png2018-04-04 07_44_48-Edit your flow _ Microsoft Flow5.png

 

It is very similar to yours, however, it has yet to run successfuly and create the file.  The last two weeks it has run sucessfuly but no file was created.  Once it completes sucessfully I will let you know.
